“The conference was reminded constantly – by David Sinclair of ILCUK for example – of the the daunting scale of the demographic timebomb: tens of millions of people of living longer, with more complex care needs (such as dementia), requiring more care hours; fewer people to pay for and deliver their care. A current cohort of older people resistant to the internet or excluded from it. A financially struggling care industry hampered by skills and staffing shortages and reluctant to embrace technology (like Telecare). A £1.8bn shortfall in the state social care budget… Adil Abrar of Sidekick Studios spoke with panache about the potential of digital, but he was emphatic we should not overstate its transformatory claims in the area of elderly care.”
